I have a set of sensors at fixed locations across a landscape. Each is connected to an Arduino Uno board which is coupled to a WiFi board. New sensors get added occasionally and old ones stop working. I want to display the data gathered by each sensor, in (nearly) real-time, in QGIS, as a map of points with attributes displayed as (for example) colours of point symbols. The data value is read by each sensor every 15 minutes or so and thus I want to upload these values to QGIS and update my QGIS vector map of the sensor values at this interval.
The data themselves are very simple - a single real numerical value which I could convert and present as integer, ASCII text string, HTML, XML or pretty much anything else because I can convert them at the sensor end. Since I know the location of each sensor I can also include values of lat/long (for example) in the data each sensor URL presents to the world.
What's the very simplest way to get my data from the sensors onto a QGIS map which periodically gets the data and displays them?
